Subject: [RT #113390] Net::FTP notice read() error on local file
The following bug report was filed in the Perl 5 bug queue at in May 2012. Net::FTP is part of the libnet distribution, which is now marked in Perl 5's Porting/ as being maintained on CPAN. Accordingly, I am transferring the bug report to this queue.--jkeenan ########## In Net::FTP version 2.77, when doing a put() if there's an error from read() it seems to be silently treated as normal eof, where I hoped it would gives some sort of error. I see the code notices an error from binmode(), or socket write() and close(), and gives an undef return, but apparently not for read() trouble. The below simulates a read error with a tied file handle. I wonder if the $ftp->put() could return undef in this case. Dunno if it should also carp() or $ftp->message() or whatever for such local errors. Carp might be alright for interactive use, but from a program you'd prefer to get a message or something and display it in your own way. I suppose for compatibility any change to carp vs message or $! etc might have to be just an option.
